Bottom Line: X-Art isnít a site that Iíd normally join because I prefer porn that has a harder edge to it, so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this site as much as I did. The site has that elusive combination of stunning models, excellent technical elements and a user-friendly website. Many sites get two of those components right but few have them all. Iím convinced that the sites that do get everything right do so because of site owners / webmasters who actually care about the material theyíre producing and putting on their site.

The site currently has 139 models. Most of those models have both videos and photos but there are a few who only do photos. Many donít have a lot of material available but there are a few who have lots of material so it balances out.

There isnít a lot of variety in the models; theyíre all Caucasian (with one or two Asians), young (18-25) and thin (but not skinny). This isnít a problem if, like me, you happen to like the type of models that the site selects, but if you prefer fuller-figured women or different races youíll not be as happy with the site. There is a mix of nationalities too.

The models are naturally beautiful, not the airbrushed, heavily made-up models that many other sites feature. Unique features like freckles are allowed to shine through, giving even more appeal.

The site has many things going for it, but one thing that really sets them apart is the chemistry between the models in the lesbian and b/g hardcore scenes. The chemistry is obvious because it exists, and also because it doesnít exist in most other sites. In most other sites the overriding feeling that the viewer gets is that here are two people being paid to have sex. Obviously the models here are also being paid, but they seem to be into the sex too. This is an assumption, but Iíll give credit to the models themselves and to the site staff who obviously play a role in creating and then capturing that chemistry. The chemistry in the scenes likely makes this a couples-friendly site.

The site offers lots of choice on how you can download or view the material. Videos can be streamed and downloaded. All videos have multiple options for downloads, though those vary depending on when the video was uploaded. The scenes are always available in WMV and Quicktime formats with lower resolutions for mobile devices being added more recently. WMVs and Quicktime videos are available in 960x540 and 1280x720 (5,000+ kbps) and in newer videos theyíre also available in 1920x1080 (8500+ kbps). I download the WMVs and theyíre in codec 7 and 30 fps. The videos are relatively short with the average being 10 to 12 minutes. A previous comment noted that these are too short, but I donít agree with that. The videos have a natural feel to them which lends itself to the shorter format. Subjectively, the videos look great.

The photos are also available in different resolutions Ė 1200, 2000 and 4000 pixels. Theyíre available as zips. The number of photos per set varies from a low of 30+ to a high of 120+ but the average set has about 80 photos in it.

The site updates daily on weekdays with either a video or photo set being added.

The site allows download managers (I use Free Download Manager) and there are no obvious timeouts.

An interesting feature is the use of original music in many of the scenes. Normally music isnít something that Iíd notice, but the choices here really do add to the feel of the scenes.

There isnít really anything to complain about, but I do have a couple of minor issues. I like behind-the-scenes clips Ė especially on sites like this where it gives a chance to see more of the modelís personality. While BTS material is available here, and even has its own tab, I canít figure out how to download the clips. It appears that the only option is to stream them. Iím assuming that the site made a conscious decision to do this, but I wish theyíd make them available for download.

There isnít a search function available, nor are there tags. The videos can be sorted, however, depending on theme (solo, g/g, b/g). Normally Iíd criticize a site for such a glaring omission, but in this case Iím not. The reason for that is that the site seems to be focused solely on the models. I realize Iím making yet another assumption here, but it is possible that the site made a decision to not offer a search function or tags as a means of keeping the models more real. Thatís how it feels anyway Ė I appreciate stumbling on an incredible hardcore scene with a beautiful model and that makes me appreciate it more than if I could select ďshaved pussy,Ē ďhardcoreĒ and ďanal.Ē Or maybe Iím just over-thinking this.

The bottom line for me is that Iíd highly recommend a membership at X-art. If you like the type of model featured on the site it has a lot of varied material available for a great price. Not only would I recommend the site, but itís on my list of sites to join again.

otoh (54) Great review RA, glad you liked the site. I've not joined it yet, but I was recently at Joymii which is very similar, you may want to check it out too. I went for it over X-Art since they seem to have a slightly broader age range of models - the large majority at X-Art seem to be 18-21. I also really like the colour, angles and general videography at Joymii; it's creative, but still explicit.

Still, based on your review, it definitely looks like this is worth a join too!

Thansk for the comments and thanks for the Joymii tip. I suspect that I'll follow your advice. One of the models on X-Art is an American named Tiffany. I wasn't able to find her on indexxx.com (yet, anyway) because "Tiffany" is a fairly common porn name. But I wanted to see more of her and I see she's a model at Joymii too. There seems to be a lot of models that work on both X-Art and Joymii.

No problem. I find TheNude a good site for looking up models - in this case their search easily found Tiffany:

Hopefully that's the right one! You'll find lots of other sites with her - although they don't seem to have Joymii there yet.

Excellent and thoughtful review with lots of fact and opinion. It is another review that confirms that the site is not for me but it was a pleasure to read.

thenude is my goto listing site too. Tiffany is everywhere, isn't she? She currently has 48 photo sets and 20 videos at ATK Galleria. I am currently a member so let me know if you want any details of those.

Ditto at Nubiles, where she has 4 photo sets and 4 videos.

Thanks Claypaws - for the kind words and pointing out where I can get more Tiffany. I'll definitely be checking my Nubiles collection later tonight and will check the ATK site.

You are welcome. She was uploaded to Nubiles in July 2011. Uploaded to ATK from February 2011 to February 2012.

I'm hoping that I've got her stuff from Nubiles because I've had a membership after that date and she is definitely someone I would have downloaded pics and video of.

Again, thanks!

You must be referring to Tiffany Thompson. She is smoking hot, and as far as I know, X-Art is the only place she has done boy/girl, which makes a membership to X-Art worth the price of admission all by itself!! Shortly after her first X-Art go-round she got out of the business...then thankfully decided to come back. She has/had her own site "Tiff Love" but I am not sure what happened to that.

I rejoined Nubiles to get more of Ms. thompson - I'm not sure how I missed her the last few times I was there - and was disappointed to see that she's solo only there. Thanks for the tip that I might already have the only b/g stuff she's done.

I stand corrected. I was able to find one b/g scene of TT on Twisty's (which leads me to believe she probably has more on there, but I am not a member to see). Unfortunately the scene I found, she has waaaaay too much makeup caked on. Which is a disservice to someone as naturally pretty as her.

I was planning a membership at Twisty's just for her stuff there. And I agree that too much makeup on a woman that naturally beautiful makes no sense.

If you do Twisty's, let me know if the TT stuff is worth the membership. I'm not that into the "real pornstar" stuff that I imagine Twisty's is mostly comprised of (i.e.- gigantic fake tits, caked on make up, that "ridden hard put away wet" look). I prefer the TT/Caprice look. Got 1 day left on my Nubiles/FTV 2-for-1 deal then I'll be looking to try something new. Thanks!!

I'll let you know what I think of TT's scenes on Twisty's if I join. I was hooked when I saw her on X-Art. Her X-Art work was better than her stuff at Nubiles.

sonofzog (0) I let my subscription to X-Art lapse in the Spring and I'm eager to re-up. The women are beautiful and very much to my taste, and the men don't look like escaped convicts. There is indeed definite rapport between (or among) the women and men (or women and women) that is very different from what is featured on most hardcore sites. No gagging or spitting, no choking or ATM; maybe it's vanilla for some but for me it's very erotic.

The comments at X-Art often put me off because people would complaining about the very nature of the material and demanding videos that were much more hardcore. There are a million websites that carry just that kind of material, and the complainers are certainly free to move on.

I'll confess to being into the same hardcore that you say you don't like. But having said that, X-Art is an amazing site that I'll return to many times. They are definitely on my 'repeat' list. I have a porn buddy who like things a little more tame then I do, and he likes fuller-framed women whereas I prefer the more petite models like those on X-Art. When I showed him a bit his reaction was "this is amazing porn!' I hope that enthusiasm transferred to another membership to the site. They deserve it.

BTW - tonight must be the night for great lines here at PU. "...men don't look like escaped convicts..." that's great! And true, too.
